lyrics

say i'm wrong
say the words that fix you
any other time, i would
push you off the ledge, youre leaning
but i dont believe in you

so misleading until youre better known
from who you knew
you'll end up alone
we bend we bray
and it wears you down
where are you now and oh i hope
you'll see youre the same

you are a brave soul, you are a martyr we know
we breathe the same, we bleed the same
yours is not gold
you have the audacity to admire you
theres a reason your death bed is empty you fool

we'll figure out what you believe in for you to feel emotion
but right now i'm gonna tell you son
i am, what i want to be
and you know you'll never make it up to me
and i am, all that i see so if anybody asks im gone you're history
everybody knows, no one ever shows up anymore
so i'm gonna tell you what i want to say
in the simplest kind of way and be a gentleman.

ive got a better tune, the kind i sing for people under you
i see what you do, i only see it cause i did it too
and ive seen common criminals take less than you do
but you don't see anything wrong at all.
im not the only one.

Figure out what you believe in for you to feel emotion
but right now i'm gonna tell you son
i am, what i want to be
and you know you'll never make it up to me
and i am, all that i see so if anybody asks im gone you're history
everybody knows no one ever shows up anymore
so i'm gonna tell you what i want to say
in the simplest kind of way and be a gentleman.

we're gonna settle down
we're gonna listen to reason
you were all wrong
instead of taking it in
you go on and on and on and on
on and on and on and on and on...

Figure out what you believe in for you to feel emotion
but right now i'm gonna tell you son
i am, what i want to be
and you know you'll never make it up to me
and i am, all that i see so if anybody asks im gone
